“The following are excerpts of bin Laden’s interview with the Pakistani newspaper Ummat published on September 28, 2001. Bin Laden states that U.S. government efforts to seize his financial resources following the 9/11 attacks are futile. ‘God opens up ways for those who work for Him. Freezing of accounts will not make any difference for al Qaeda or other jihad groups. Al Qaeda has more than three alternative financial systems, which are all separate and totally independent from each other.’ “

 – Peter Bergen, The Osama bin Laden I Know, Pages 315-316
